Waqf: (Pl: Awqaf/waqfs) Literally Waqf means to stop, contain, or to preserve. In Shari’ah, a Waqf is a voluntary, permanent, irrevocable dedication of a portion of one’s wealth – in cash or kind – to Allah. Once a Waqf is made, it belongs to Allah and the corpus of the Waqf always remains intact. The fruits of the Waqf may be utilized for any Shari’ah compliant purpose.
The institute of Waqf has always been a means of benefiting humanity – through endowments made during the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and throughout the dynasties of Islamic societies.
